Subject: I really like these Horatio Alger books
Like the prior book, Ragged Dick, it is most delightfully read by Alys Attewater - who never even says her name! And then in chapter 15 the reader switches to Barry Eads who is also a good reader but AA is my favorite. It takes place in pre-civil war NYC, and likAnd, like the prior book, Ragged Dick, it is most delightfully read by Alys Attewater - who never even says her name! And then in chapter 15 the reader switches to Barry Eads who is also a good reader but AA is my favorite. It takes place in pre-civil war NYC, and as in Ragged D I like the views it offers of old New York, including Chinatown before it was Chinatown. And I like the way all the loose ends get resolved. Excellent!

Subject: Sequel to Ragged Dick
Be sure to listen to Ragged Dick before you check this one out. This classic lets you know what happens to the characters from the first book and their adventures in old New York. This book is well read and a pleasure to listen to!
